It would be extremely difficult for me to serve on our Board of Directors without the able and dedicated work of Incline Consultants. I know when our Board makes a decision that Incline will make it happen. We don't have to second-guess every situation knowing that the matter is in their hands.

They are a "small office" by definition, but provide the quality of service expected from a "big" office. The staff is dedicated, thorough and knowledgeable. The account manager has a very proffessional, no nonsense approach to business and gets the job done without execuses. I have dealt with other HOA management companies and fine them to be superb!

Association Managers International Certification Board (CAMICB) is a 17-year old independent board that sets the standards for community association managers worldwide.
CAMICB (formerly NBC-CAM) administers the Certified Manager of Community Associations® (CMCA) examination, a rigorous, three-hour test that measures managers' knowledge of community management best practices. Passing the CMCA examination and maintaining the standards of the CMCA certification is proof that a manager is knowledgeable, ethical and professional. CMCA-certified managers have the skills to safeguard the assets of homeowners' associations, giving homeowners peace of mind and protecting home values. The CMCA credential is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) which means it complies with NCCA’s stringent international standards for a professional certification program. NCCA accreditation provides independent validation that the CMCA program meets or exceeds twenty-one standards concerning various aspects of the certification program including its purpose, structure, governance, psychometric foundation, policies and procedures. Accreditation validates the integrity of the CMCA program and is a mark of quality.
